Hurry Please I Want To Know, The Snow Child, and In Our Time

I’ve been told to write everyday over the summer. Okay, challenge accepted. Classes have been over for about a week and I’ve already written thirty pages of crap. Not bad crap; I’ve gotten pretty good at polishing turds if I do say so myself, but it’s not as hard as marble or even as hard as… Continue reading Hurry Please I Want To Know, The Snow Child, and In Our Time

Adjusting to classes that meet three days a week instead of just once a week like they did at the EKU Danville Campus is a lot… Continue reading Flannery O’Connor, Edgar Allan Poe, and Kincaid

My bookmark currently rests between pages 69 and 70 in the Norton book. My goal was to read it cover-to-cover, but the syllabus wouldn’t cooperate with that idea. For the last few classes,… Continue reading Sonny’s Blues, Bartleby the Scrivener, and Cathedral
